Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group May Challenge - Flowers in bloom

Over at the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Group the challenge for May 2015 was "flowers in bloom" and you had to use the free image provided by Ching-Chou Kuik called "Carnation Love".
For my seaside inspired card I have used the free image "Carnation Love" and coloured the image in with my Promarkers and then fussy cut the image.

I have used a sea/sky backing paper from my Joanna Sheen Faye Whittaker CD.  I tore some card and then chalked over to represent mounds of sand.

I then die-cut various shells, seagulls and foliage and again chalked over these with a yellow and beige chalk.  The flowers I made by printing off some papers from Summertime Designs back-to-back so that when I used a rose flower die from the recent Simply Cards and Papercrafting CD I had colours both sides.  Personally I don't like to see on cards flowers that have been made with white undersides so I make sure I print back-to-back or colour/stamp on the other side.

I have then finished the card off with some real tiny shells and some pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
